Last year, the East Neuk Festival created a Schubert in the sand.
This year, it’s a Stradivarius. Credits to Sand in Your Eye team Jamie Wardley and Claire Jamieson. The artwork reflects a beautiful 300-year-old Stradivarius violin that has been loaned to the Festival this year.
It will all be gone by nightfall.
press release: Monday 29 June 2015: A 3-D anamorphic drawing of a giant violin took shape on Elie beach at low tide this morning to celebrate the annual East Neuk Festival. It was created by the Sand in Your Eye team of Jamie Wardley and Claire Jamieson in honour of the beautiful 300-year-old Stradivarius violin loaned to the Festival this year, and to reflect the Festival programme of chamber music performed this coming week in churches and venues throughout the East Neuk. This work of art is a limited edition in every sense of the word as it existed for only a few hours – until the tides rolled in and washed it away.
The first concert is tonight in Dunino Church; celebrated violinist Hugo Ticciati improvising on, and playing solo violin music by JS Bach.
